If you want to know how to make paper airplanes it's best to choose an expert.
William loves making paper airplanes. He's made all the models we've ever seen.
So I asked him to show you step by step his favorite easy model which is guaranteed to fly far and will give your kids hours of fun.
There are lots of airplanes to learn how to make, but you'll soon find that some fly better than others and instructions can be a bit hard to follow.
It's always good to get first-hand advice.
I've chosen one which has been flight-tested
and got top colors as the best you can find!
The homeschool airplane William's chosen isn't the most beautiful model you've ever seen.
In fact it looks a little like its nose has been squashed in!
But his homeschool airplane for kids is really easy to make and will definitely fly far.
What more do you need?
It's a paper airplane that's probably appeared in a number of kids books before; the difference is that William's flight tested it and rated it top for the best easy model around.
He's going to take you through the stages step by step so you can learn how to make your own.
Take an A4 piece of multi purpose printer paper. Fold the top edge to the side edge.
Fold down the top corner.
Fold down the top corner again.
Fold the plane in half.
Fold down the wings on the front and on the back.
Fold up the bottom edges of the wings on the front and back to make slats.
the wings stick out to the sides and then get the slats to stick
There you go! The finished homeschool airplane which will fly far and defy all comers.
